Sorry @SquirrelMaster I don't see where...but then you contradicted yourself
I've broken glass. But I spent $150+ on accessories so I'd have extra.Couldn't disagree more. I think your let those anecdotes of broken glass overcome your mind a bit – actually these incidents have been pretty rare and I always considered the TM to be a rather sturdy device. Tossing it around is probably a bad idea, and so is dropping it, although mine survived a hard drop without issues. Inserting the stem is easy when you have set that big red o ring right. If you practice opening and closing the battery lid, it will become an easy task too. And I'm sure the TM has no prob with back to back sessions at all. Never had for me at least.
So yeah, everyone is different, but for me the TM is supereasy to use, maintain and take care of, not „delicate“ at all.
The paraffin is probably only mixed in to make the beeswax smoother. You can find beeswax for much cheaper in any hardware store.
there may be irregularities in the wood that cause loss of continuity.
The height of the wood does not affect the continuity of the circuit.
Those two sentences from your post sounded contradictory but now I get what you're saying. An uneven surface would definitely mess with things but I still think the height of the block could come into play, though now I think I may have had it backwards. Assuming the screws are all the same length a shorter body could cause the screw to bottom out and not allow the caps to snug up tightly to the body but if this was the case then the 3 points on the board would be an issue again as you could move the wood body independently from the caps. In my head that seems like something that would be very obvious and we've never heard of anything like that.
I used electrical tape, didn't change anything that I noticed.I added a small shim under the metal strip end so it has a bit more sticking up when pressed together with the top. I just used a folded over piece of masking tape to create a slight bump. Let's see if this point is the main cause.....for me anyway.
please post some photos when you are done, I wouldn't mind sealing the wood as well. I just don't know what would be safe etc. Are you going to take your unit apart to stain it or just tape off the metal? I wouldn't feel comfortable taking mine apart.I've got a Tinymight from June that still going strong, it even survived a broken internal glass sleeve!
I love the rebuildability and willingness to provide spare parts from the manufacturer, but I notice some color changing and I think the bare wood is going to be an issue in the long run.
After a bit of research I'm going to try General Finishes Brown Mahogany Gel Stain and GF Water Based Gloss Topcoat.
Wish me luck!
This is the most frustrating thing to me. I could deal with the inconsistent performance if the customer support was more responsive. I understand that he's busy but this issue doesn't seem to be that uncommon considering how many other people I found that had a similar problem.I used electrical tape, didn't change anything that I noticed.
Some units seen to display this inconsistency, towards the end mine needed cleaning or to be reassembled almost daily to keep working near full.
I didn't find any patterns before she got deep sixed, at least until RMA or I hear back about a possible self performed solution, which in the past when you could talk to him he was open to...
I’m glad he showed the AVB - I’ve tried this many times, with many vapes, even with a mesh screen in the bowl to widen the load and promote better airflow and it never vapes remotely evenly.@CremeFraiche1127 – Have you tried contacting the company via the site / your account? Mails don't work well with them these days.
Interesting approach to use a Tinymight:
Kind of like the NEO by Prrl. :-)
I don't use TM. Also, I didn't create an account when I ordered so my order won't be linked.@madhockeydad – Emails do not really work here. Log into your account on the TM site, go to your „Order history“, there you'll find options to file a complaint and claim warranty. Good luck.
In the meantime you could provide us with the exact symptoms, maybe we can help troubleshooting your issue.
